THE WEATHER FORECAST IS IN: THE RAIN WILL RETURN…..
Summer may be just around the corner, but further rain is expected... Netflix has renewed its first Danish original series The Rain for a second season. The acclaimed series created by Jannik Tai Mosholt, Esben Toft Jacobsen and Christian Potalivo resonated with audiences globally including the U.S, UK, Brazil, France and Germany as well as its native Denmark. The series will go back into production later this year and will launch in 2019.
Kelly Luegenbiehl, Vice President of International Originals for Netflix, said: “We’re really excited to team up with the talented cast and our team of amazing creators for another season. The Rain has a relatable and human story at its core and touches on universal themes everyone can identify with. The fact that season 1 reached audiences all over the world, proves once again that strong stories can transcend borders.”
Jannik Tai Mosholt, Head Writer and Co-creator on The Rain said: "We're so thankful for the success of the show and the overwhelmingly positive response from audiences. We’re really excited to be able to do a second season of The Rain. We still have a lot of stories to tell about our characters and much more to explore in our universe, and can't wait for everyone to be able to see it."
Peter Bose, Partner at Miso Film said "The response to the show has been fantastic, and we are so proud to continue our collaboration with Netflix on this second season of The Rain".
